Dr. Elizabeth Olivet is a clinical psychologist who consults for the NYPD and District Attorney's office on Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Law & Order: Trial by Jury. She has also appeared on New York Undercover.

History

Olivet first works with the 27th Precinct as a grief counselor after Sgt. Max Greevey is murdered; she helps Greevey's partner, Mike Logan, come to terms with his death. (L&O: "Confession") She and Logan grow very close, and it is suggested that they had a brief affair. (L&O: "Betrayal") When Logan is forced to kill a man who later turned out to be an undercover cop, he goes to Olivet for counseling. (CI: "To the Bone") 

Olivet was molested, and later raped, by Dr. Alex Merritt, a gynecologist who had also sexually abused one of Olivet's patients. Merritt is eventually imprisoned for life for committing dozens of rapes, but Olivet is traumatized by her attack for many years afterward. (L&O: "Helpless")

After leaving the DA's office, she went into private practice and, according to Emil Skoda, is teaching and now specializes in "kids with crime-related trauma." (L&O: "Refuge (1)") It is also implied that she is married with children. This later work leads her to testify for the defense of children against the DA office twice: Jenny Brandt (L&O: "Killerz") and Elias Barrera (SVU: "Baby Killer").

She returns to working with NYPD as she worked with Logan again after he was moved to the Major Case Squad as mentioned before, and later on seeing Amanda Rollins after she shot Jeff Parker, the ex-boyfriend of her sister Kim Rollins. (SVU: "Deadly Ambition") She also examines Lourdes Vega, working on the behalf of Peter Stone, the son of Benjamin Stone. (SVU: "Remember Me Too")
